Andrew W.K. to speak at My Little Pony convention in OhioBy Reverb Staff | June 13th, 2012 | No Comments »
The white-clad rocker announced Tuesday plans to participate in a panel discussion at a My Little Pony convention this September surrounding his favorite topic (yeah, it’s partying).
The singer will give a motivational speech entitled “What Would Pinkie Pie Do?” based on Pinkie Pie, the pink party-planner pony from the “Friendship Is Magic” TV show, part of the My Little Pony franchise. The answer is, quite clearly, she would party.
In the announcement, Canterlot Gardens calls Andrew W.K. “the embodiment of Pinkie Pie herself.” Pinkie Pie is often characterized as hyper, friendly, and random. She is also a baker, and keeps a toothless alligator for a pet. Her love of parties serves as the inspiration for W.K., who plans to address “how to make your job as fun as your party, and your party as important as your job,” according to the release.
The discussion will take place Sept. 28 at the Canterlot Gardens convention in Strongsville, Ohio. –Kelsey Fowler
